We at the Football Transfer Tavern are keen to see Tottenham ace Gareth Bale stay in the Premier League but we didn’t expect Manchester United to line up a bid for him as the Daily Star are reporting.
Bale has openly stated that he would love to play for Real Madrid one day and the Spanish side are set to make a summer move for the Welsh wizard.
However United’s attempts to bring old boy Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford seems to be a no go and so they hope to steal Bale from under the noses of Madrid.
Bale would prefer a move to the Spanish capital but Spurs are also keen on the winger to stay at White Hart Lane for one more season and sign a new contract in order to enhance his value further.
David Moyes had hoped to pull off a £60 million move for Ronaldo but it seems an £80 million move for Bale is the next best option.
Are we really set for one of the transfer stories of the summer? Rate this rumour below.
